Question about HTC Shadow Smartphone

1 Answer

HTC Shadow II I just purchased this phone used but i got a brand new battery for it. Its been charging for over 30 minutes but it will not power even for a short few seconds. It seems to be dead except for the flashng LED amber light. When i unplug the AC charger, the LED light flashes red for a second and disappears. I read the manual and the Red light means its under 10% power, and the Flashing Amber light indicates it wont charged due to temperature being below 32 F or 114 F. which of course is impossible. I made sure the AC Charged is an HTC 100-200v charger, which should match the phone. I'm not sure if I got suckered into a broken phone or if I am doing something wrong. Can you advise? Thank you.

I'm afraid that you most likely have been suckered, my friend.  Look on the back of the phone. If the little round sticker (about the size of a pencil eraser) is red, the phone has liquid damage and is most likely causing the battery not to take charge.  If it is still white, then you may have a chance at having the phone replaced by your service provider but the person you purchased the device from will have to place the exchange for you.  Is this also a new charger?  Could be the USB port.....  Good luck!

My htc titan II has a battery problem. It says that my battery is crittically low. how do i fix this problem?


The first thing would be to replace the battery with a new one. If it charges, you're golden. If not, it could be the hardware of the phone (possibly the charge port).
Also try using a different USB cable and adapter to charge with, as those could be failing.

HTC TOUCH HD charging problem


Well hope so you didn't damaged the sensors! try this : use the phone until battery is empty and switches off. then put it on the charger for 4 hours. If no joy,try different battery to make sure that device is not damaged and get a new battery.

My HTC Shadow won't turn on


Will the phone even indicate that it is taking a charge when it is plugged in?  If not, the phone is out of commission and then you will need to file a claim with Asurion if you have the Premium Handset Protection that they offer with most service providers.  The deductible would be about $110.00.  Or you could wait and just purchase the Shadow II on January 28th when T-Mobile releases it.  Good luck!

Battery won't charge.


hello,

normally many cell phones requires 6-10hrs for its batter to fully charge up. also i have seen it where battery can be brand new but doesn't have enough juice to hold the charge.
now as far as red light on charger, remember even if you have 99% charged batter and you plug in the charger it will show you red light on phone/cradle.

FYI- all brand new phones are covered with 30 days of warranty replacement with new phone. after 30 days it covers upto 1 year from the date of purchase with refurbished phones.

In your case i think it is just the battery, try having your provider replacing new battery if no luck again then my suggestion will be to replace your phone with new battery with in 30 days.

TY

Normally a drained battery would take about 30-40 minutes to charge, however if the battery charges in about 2-3 minutes or even faster (as in your case) the fault lies in the battery. If your phone isn't water dropped and is within the warranty period you will get a new battery. I would suggest u change the battery and check (maybe with another battery of a similar make) and then see the results before u could buy one.
